Ultimate Rivals: Cat v. Dog

Cats and dogs have figured out how to live together under our roofs, but in the wild their story is different. In this classic natural history film, the competition for survival unfolds in the plains of southern Africa. And it’s not just a “cat eat dog” world here in the grasslands: lions eat cheetahs; jackals eat lion cubs; hyenas will eat anything. And yet, one predator trumps them all.

Weather is the age-old nemesis, storming through anything and anyone in its path. When drought wreaks havoc on the terrain, the competition gets fiercer and it means eat quick or die trying. Hunger waits for no rain in Africa – whether you’re a big cat or wild dog.
